The Virgin Suicides 04/17/18

The Criterion Collection

Sofia Coppola’s first feature film is a head-swirling poetic essay about adolescent angst and terminal self-destruction in suburbia, where some families are unbalanced, others are dysfunctional and some are just plain toxic. Coppola sticks close to the source book, looking for visuals to express author Jeffrey Eugenides’ solution-challenged mystery, narrated by a composite group of teenaged boys. Kirsten Dunst, James Woods, Kathleen Turner and Josh Hartnett star. On Blu-ray from The Criterion Collection.
